The gpsras image must be a 1 bit/pixel bitmap.
No output is generated if the input cannot be read,

The XBM format is
usable by other X Window applications,

This is reverse of what you'd expect, but that's because the bits
of an XBM image are normally the reverse of what they are in a
The gpsras format treats 1 as white, while the XBM format treats
0 as white.
So, "-inv 0" suppresses reverse video.
The order of bits in each byte is always reversed, as gpsras
format uses the most significant bit first, while XBM uses the
least significant bit first.
